Please enable the policy No-Auto restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates

This will not restart the clients when they are logged on

Refer http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc720539(v=ws.10).aspx

Hence your basic problem will be eliminated

You can't do it right at login but why not change the time to 2 AM for example.   Users should not be in and it only happens once a month.
